Skills Demonstrated[edit | edit source]
These skills have been identified in the video:
|Barbarian skills:||Wizard skills:||Witch Doctor skills:|
0:25—The Barbarian uses Leap Attack, with a rune effect creating a circle of five small explosions around the Barb.
0:53—Wizard shows off Explosive Blast a few times, each one leaving a lovely crater in the ground.
0:59—Wizard hurls lightning bolts that look a bit like javelins. When each one hits it sizzles the target and sends our several tendrils of lightning that kill other enemies. This is apparently a runed form of Electrocute, and it really shows the utility of skillrunes, as a single-target, beam-type spell is changed to a multi-target projectile.
1:28—Snakes on the face! It’s Bashiok’s favorite rune effect for Poison Dart. The way the snake’s tail keeps wiggling after it strikes is hilarious.
1:29—Unknown glowing green flamethrower type attack. Most likely a runed version of Firebats.
1:35—The wiggly blueish-white spell is probably Haunt, engulfing victims, then thanks to a rune bonus, propagating multiple additional Haunts off to other nearby targets. Locust Swarm does the same thing a second later.
2:55—The WD shows an awesome rune upgrade to Zombie Charger (yes, even better than skinless Zombie Bears), with some kind of multi-zombie effect that creates almost as much green poisonous gas as your great uncle did after last year’s Christmas Dinner.
3:30—Another uncertain WD skill; probably another runed version of Soul Harvest? It creates a purple light around monsters and sends a blue ghost flying back to the WD when the target dies. A bunch of Zombie Bear stampedes shown around this time as well.
